?I received a courtesy copy of this book and yes it was a beautiful feeling to see my name in the ‘acknowledgments’ for the book. What’s more beautiful is to contribute a 1% of your workday to help someone so that you feel good for the other 99% of the time.
Based on this simple concept of contributing just 1% of your service for a good cause, Public Architecture started ‘the1%’ program in 2005. Today it’s even shaped itself into a book. This book goes a long way with its inspiring and successful stories of people that believe in doing public good.
In this world of architecture, we hunt hungry to spot those ‘Oh-so-cool’ moments. And, we sit silent often; ignoring that architecture can also be about bringing change for a good cause. Design is changing the world.
Here is a book that will inspire you. Read it, read these 40 stories. And then, become a part of one such story.
Make a change, make a difference.
